Re: 2012 Golden Gate Gathering

Hi Richard, I'm the guy taking rubber chicken pictures. I saw that David Regal always had people trying to strangle him so I decided to have people pose with RC (Rubber Chicken). Enjoy your magazine and the site. Sending you a collage of some of the magicians who have posed with RC. All the best, Gary

Re: New Book Coming on the Card Magic of David Berglas

I'd like to Woo Hoo too, but I'm still waiting for my pre-ordered copy to show up. No joy today either in beautiful Rosevill, CA. :-(

Re: New Book Coming on the Card Magic of David Berglas

Guess if I lived in Paris instead of California I might have the book by now. My last name is French. Maybe that will help :-)

Maybe this weekend.

I'm the old gray haired guy holding the iPhone with the lyrics. In first grade I was a curtain. Now I've moved up (I think) and am a music stand. Who knows what the future holds.

Re: New Book Coming on the Card Magic of David Berglas

Hi Richard,

I wonder if the Bound Printed Matter is the same thing as Book Rate. I have used Book Rate in the past and I don't recall it taking anything like the time this is taking.

Hopefully folks aren't being too hard on you.

Take care,
Gary

Re: New Book Coming on the Card Magic of David Berglas

Hi Richard, Are you going to offer the "strapped to the back of a mule" mailing option in the future? Still waiting in Roseville. I think that everyone who pre-ordered should throw a dollar in a pot and it gets awarded to the last person, who pre-ordered, to receive the book. Warmest regar...

Hi Richard, Yeah, I would have to agree, very unfortunate. I would have been better off not pre-ordering but then this mailing fiasco was unforeseeable. I will be patient. Maybe by the time I get my copy everyone else will have forgotten all about the Berglas effect and it will be my secret. :-) Wai...

friboundi - don't panic yet. It still hasn't arrived in Roseville, CA as of 6/19. Richard mentioned that it could take until the end of the month for everyone in the US to get theirs. I'm not going to panic until July 1st.

Re: New Book Coming on the Card Magic of David Berglas

Now that's a scary thought if the printer is determining what is urban and what is rural! This whole exercise has shed some light on an area of the post office that I was unaware of. So at least it's been a good learning experience.

Re: New Book Coming on the Card Magic of David Berglas

If San Francisco is considered "rural" then Roseville (near Sacramento) must be considered "rustic". However, I do remember having to dodge cows in the road on the way to work back in the late 80's.

Hi Richard,

Thanks for the information. Now I have a late date to shoot for before bothering you. From those who have received it, it sounds like you did an amazing job. I hope to be amazed before too long.

Thanks again for keeping us up to date on the ways of the USPS.

I took James up on his offer and he sent me a code for a free copy. I think that this is a great iPhone app. The beauty of it is, that unlike many of the other iPhone apps, this one does not look like an app. I think that it also works best for people who have some familiarity with the iPhone.

Re: Why do you go to conventions?

It needs to be close to minimize travel expenses. It needs to specialize in close-up magic, which is what I do. And then I go to see people that I have met through my almost fifty years involvement with magic (and that I only see once a year or so because of these conventions) and to meet new people...

Re: Close-up Magic on Letterman

Speaking of J.A. Palmer and his chicks. I remember seeing a performance where one of the cups started moving on the table on its own (after the load of a chick). Pretty funny, and yes you could hear the chicks peeping, but it was still entertaining to watch.
